    Re: Lumix help center:

    Hi I have a Lumix, model DMC-FX10.
    Recently, when I turn on the camera the screen is just black. It's on, I can take pictures, it flashes, but the pictures take as black pictures.
    I've changed memory cards and it worked for 1 or 2 pictures, but it's gone back to just being black again.
    Any ideas?

    Hi toastyred,

    I don't know much about the DMC-FX10, but I do have suggestions for fixing your problem:

    #1. Take pictures using both memory cards, and if you have another battery pack, take some shots with it too.

    #2. Now, take the SD card out of the lumix and stick it into a card reader. Can the photos be downloaded to a computer using the reader?
    If the pictures can be viewed in the computer and not on the camera's screen, then it is the screen thats the problem.

    Let me know if this worked.
